Cavities are formed when acids erode your tooth enamel. If a cavity is left untreated, your tooth can suffer serious damage and even become infected. This could lead to root canal therapy or even an extraction. To avoid these problems, our dentists, Dr. Seung Lee and Dr. Joseph Fink, may suggest a dental filling in Aurora, Colorado. Fillings are an easy way to repair your tooth and, in most cases, they can be placed in a single visit. To see if you could benefit from a dental filling, call Del Mar Family Dental Care today at 303-577-0062.
